But if you want the budget CPU and say in a year want to upgrade, you "might" be able to find a 3770K for cheap and that will fit in that mobo.
Now if you decide to upgrade in 3 or 4 years, you will have to get a new mobo and CPU. The upgradability is for the short term. Never think you'll future proof a computer for 5 years, it just won't happen... =P

I feel as though I would be able to keep my setup for 5 years, minus the GPU. even then, I think I'll be able to play most games in the future at decent settings.

Have you considered an AMD build? on your budget it would be a better choice.

All depends on what the user is planning to do with it.

I'm quite sure not everyone is going to fully utilize everything the motherboard offers.

Agreed, but were on OCN. thumb.gif

Anyway, IMHO, H67 board aren't worth the money to me. For laptops I think they are well worth it but desktop build should be able to have some overclocking potential, even if its minimal.

Is there any other thing that is needed to replace the CPU?

So, I am able to equip haswell CPU if I get a then high end mobo, correct? That would be cheaper than getting a new computer in 2014-15

At OCN, we look for best price/performance. Not getting unused features thumb.gif

So what you're saying is, even if I only browse the web, I should get an i5 3570k (or equivalent unlocked processor) and a Z77 mobo (or equivalent overclockable mobo)?

But since it's a $1000 build, I would get the 3570k, ASRock Z77 Extreme4 or Pro4 (Extreme has SLI and Crossfire, whereas Pro only has Crossfire [16x/4x])

8GB 1600Mhz RAM. You should get the Samsung 30nm ones. Overclocking king

An X650 Power supply from Seasonic. Gold and ready to go. Capable of SLI and crossfire

Case is your preference.

An aftermarket cooler if you plan to overclock.

A 560Ti or 6970. Maybe 7870 if you can fit the budget.

Nope. If you go 1155 now, you can't upgrade to Haswell unless you get a new motherboard

Haswell is 1150 (AFAIK)

I'm saying that if all you're doing is using it for web browsing, you shouldn't need to spend $1000. That's a $500 build. With $1000, possibilities are higher and that's more of a higher end rig.

And yes, Haswell is 1150 socket while most motherboards now are 1155, or 2011 with X79.

Thank you all for the help.
I cannot believe that I got so much help and I hav not even paid anything. It almost seems unfair.... I could pay you guys, but then Im very cheap.
I could give you guys big hugs.. but I know you guys wouldnt want that.

Thank you very much for the help
